I'd listen to radio signals
But all I'd hear is chlorine bleached static
That leaves a the bitter taste of Advil in my thoughts
Drugged up in an anaesthetic haze of morphine induced comatose
I'd clench my teeth to stop the florescent vowels
From escaping my insomniac lips
I've chewed them shut and pasted book spines on my ribcage
In an attempt to be something organic and interesting
Because the plain Jane exterior I've laced between my iris's
Is becoming a contradiction of what little sanity I possess

the metaphors are too much, but somehow i still got the picture, i guess. :)

the atmosphere is sad, but the way you wrote this make it feel as if there's something much more beneath this.

Thank you, I guess I do overwork my metaphors often but it's just something that defines my writing style I suppose.

I like to let people wonder what I write about and what the meaning behind my words are.

I cannot imagine what is beneath these metaphors for you only that I can relate to each one. They smbolize my feelings all too well. I amagine many people can relate. "bookspines on my ribcage" that's perfect - Dynamic, complex, deep, and profound.

I'm glad and somewhat sad that you can relate to them, glad in that you enjoy my writing but sad to know that others know what the feelings are like. It's sad that people can empathise with pain and suffering more than anything else, but I suppose there's a morbit comfort in knowing we are not alone.

Through pain and suffering the world shalt be made a new through the eyes of the insane shall it be understood. You write wonderfully from the soul and always live to read them

Thank you so much for the lovely comment, I'm glad you liked it.
Though sometimes it's painful to see the world in hazes of grey, after all ignorance is bliss.

That's why they made books all the color you need is in them

I dunno what to say. This is lovely and sad at the same time.
